How to Share and Reuse Learning Resources: The ARIADNE Experience.
ABSTRACT ARIADNE is a European foundation that aims to foster “Share and Reuse” of learning resources. To support this goal, ARIADNE
has created an infrastructure for managing learning objects in an open and scalable way. This paper describes the technical
approach behind our open, standards based infrastructure, how content providers can connect to it, and the value they can
derive from doing so. As such, the abundance that we help to unlock will act as a platform for innovation by tool developers,
trainers and teachers and learners themselves.

Conference Paper: Taking into account users' privacy within TEL systems[Show abstract] [Hide abstract]
ABSTRACT: The personalization of Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) is an area of active research, as proven by the numerous studies concerned with the design of Contextualized Attention Metadata (CAM) systems to offer customized services to learning. These systems, based on the collect of personal data of users, face with certain privacy rules and constraints they do not tackle. We propose in this paper a CAM framework that fills this gap, based on a highly distributed architecture and a set of open standards that facilitates the reuse of our approach in different contexts. A principle of our proposal is the partitioning of data storage: personal data are stored on the workstation of learners, while non-sensitive data reside on a central server. Even if data are geographically distributed, the proposed mechanisms and algorithms provide TEL with the capabilities to obtain a uniform view of all recorded data and to implement personalized learning services.EEE 2011; 07/2011

ABSTRACT: This paper explains how we have contributed to the development of an open learning infrastructure that manages and makes available Open Educational Resources. By removing friction between people and resources, we can leverage the long tail of learning resources, so that the abundance of learning resources will act as a platform for innovation.Rainbow of Computer Science - Dedicated to Hermann Maurer on the Occasion of His 70th Birthday; 01/2011
